Description mal 2013-06-28 14:44:02 UTC
If you create a pie chart from cells that are not next to each other
the chart shrinks down to a tiny size when you stop editing it. 

Double click on the chart to edit it and it pops back up to it's normal size

Other chart types don't seem to be effected

openSuse 12.3 and 12.2 
LO 4.0.3 and 4.1 RC1
Comment 1 Michael 2013-07-02 10:34:37 UTC

thanks for reporting.
I tried to reproduce it with LO on Ubuntu 13.04 as you described but the pie chart does not shrink when stopping to edit it here.
Can you attach an example document to this bug report so that we can look into it?

Setting the bug to needinfo for now.
Comment 2 mal 2013-07-02 10:45:21 UTC
Maybe it only happens on open/Suse I haven't got anything else to test it on



I put the bug there as well as I wasn't sure who I should report it to.
Another poster put a picture of what happens

Comment 5 Michael 2013-07-03 04:17:45 UTC

I can now reproduce this bug. As soon as you use labels as well it does not shrink. That is why I missed it earlier, sorry for this.

Reproduced with LO on OSX 10.8.4 so setting platform to all.
Earliest LO version tested with this bug so setting version to this.

Not reproducible with LO

Usually if the chart shrinks means that an exception occurred somewhere in chart code. In this case also the legend is not drawn, which looks to me that the code exited before getting to the legend drawing code. Looks like pie chart can not handle non-continuous data ranges well.

Fixed this as 

Please test this on nightly builds

Comment 11 Muthu 2013-12-18 15:00:51 UTC
Looks like a missing chart - a different bug or a regression, I am assuming.
[I can confirm that the chart is missing for me though - all the pie chart types]
Comment 12 mal 2013-12-18 15:03:29 UTC
I have a similar one in bug 72559 
Are they related ?
Comment 13 Muthu 2013-12-19 10:27:22 UTC
yes, that would be the problem.
I would suggest leaving this fixed and waiting for bug 72559 to get fixed before reopening (or working on) this one.

Setting to ASSIGNED as that seems more appropriate. REOPENED means that the bug was claimed FIXED at some point - that's not the case here.

Hi Muthu,
I'm setting this ticket back to NEW as it has been inactive for more than 3

don't repro very small size of pie chart in

Version: (x64)
Build ID: 7ca7d61dc25f409e209b3a432c7f07469b17e316
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 6.1; UI render: default; VCL: win; 
TinderBox: Win-x86_64@42, Branch:master, Time: 2019-05-03_23:08:41
Locale: ru-RU (ru_RU); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: CL

but I see three items in the legend instead two. Looks as second item equal zero and pie chart looks good but it has wrong legend.
I think it's another bug (or may be not a bug?)
